Wonky

I’m going to run away from home, relax, listen to some music.

Paul Leonard-Morgan – Blue State

I’ll visit Wonky the cat in my friend’s garden just up the hill and catch some sun.

Hilda says, "You do know how he got his name don't you ? He came from the family at the bottom of the lane. As you know we feed them daily, and on two consecutive occasions he was there in the same spot, hadn't moved so we feared that he couldn't walk, which indeed he couldn't, he dragged his rear leg. We knew that he was suffering so bought him back to our home and called the vet out who confirmed that he had dislocated his leg and needed total rest for 2-3 weeks. For those weeks he lived a very comfortable life in one of our bedrooms complete with en-suite. Thereafter he'd be able to return to his family, but as you know that never happened...hence the name that we chose for him ! He does visit his family daily as he enjoys the walk with Alfie (their dog)."

  2. Can you hear me laughing here in Massachusetts, Ralph? I love this one and it hits home too. My cat sits on the windowsill each morning whining and scratching, trying to get the birds on the roof. I always feel a little bad for him, but I don’t want him to hurt the birds either. ❀

    • Hi Mary πŸ˜€
      Wow ! Massachusetts is a long way from Spain ! I wondered why the Noise Abatement people were nosing around here. lol. Glad you had fun my friend.
      Great cat story. I don’t blame you for keeping him in.

  3. Oh Ralph, those cats are at it again. Do you think they need a puppy to put them in their place?

      The neighbours’ little dog sometimes pokes his nose in this apartment. Stands there and shivers as my two cats sit and watch him. Then they run and hide and the dog saunters off downstairs. Quite funny to watch. Ralph xox ❀

  4. Loved this one Ralph! It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to stop in and read…mostly because our two kitties, Willie Nelson and Dinger have been keeping me up all night howling at the neighbour cat who comes and sits outside of our patio door to torture them. Sending you love from Canada!

      It’s been ages since we last communicated. It’s lovely to read your comment.
      Oh dear ! Cats ! It must be torture for you being kept awake. Luckily, I am 3 floors up so I don’t have that problem. Birds fighting themselves on the windows, yes, but that’s during the day. Keeps my cats amused for hours though πŸ˜€
      Love back. Ralph xox ❀

      Most of my UK readers will recognise this music as the background to the reveal in a UK TV show “60 minute makeover”. After much hunting, I eventually found this “unnamed” piece on YouTube. It’s beautiful, as is your comment my friend πŸ˜€
      I do hope you are having a lovely week. Thinking of you over breakfast πŸ˜€
